It could certainly delay it until certain contract provisions are adjusted.
No need to trade him yet. He's as close to a No. 1 as the Cardinals have.
Nobody around here much cares about the Rockies' long-term success at this juncture-- is the way I read it.
He really didn't play for them all season. He's just doing this for fun.
I suspect he will find some time in the outfield and at first base along the way but he is a third baseman until told otherwise.
I suspect they have a little money with which to play but not much. Bench help or pitching depth could be addressed.
I would say his impact is more derived from his stats. But the other part is not to be ignored.
Probably more circumstances but they never gave up on acquiring Arenado. The tea leaves finally lined up.
Well, thank you--and thank the fans, I guess.
I will miss Wong, too, but KC not best spot for him. Hard to tell about pitching. This is something the Cardinals could address during the season depending on how Mikolas and/or Hicks rebound. Martinez, too.
No steroids guys. Voted for Schilling--for last time. Voted for Rolen, Billy Wagner, Todd Helton, Jeff Kent, Mark Buehrle among others.
That's not happening. There is no do-over on that part of the deal.
I would like to see that. Not sure if it has been offered, though.
Carpenter's mindset is to be a contributing offensive player again. The rest of this will take care of itself.
That option in all probability would not be picked up. That would be a bit of a risk, don't you think?
Arenado-Gomber would be a one-for-one on roster. But these matters always can be worked out by outrighting somebody if they have to.
They would also have to take on $18 million contracts, which they do not want to do.
And. . . you would rather have Ozuna than Arenado? Another country heard from.
Nothing wrong with day baseball. That seems to be the over-riding theme here.
